of san antonio. finally, first lady michelle obama. this of course is not michelle obama as per speech of the national convention. she spoke about her husband four years ago at the democratic convention. her remarks run about 40 minutes. [applause] as you might imagine, for barack, running for president is nothing compared to that first game of basketball with my brother, craig. i can't tell you how much it means to have craig and my mom here tonight. like craig, i can feel my dad looking down on us, just as i've felt his presence in every grace-filled moment of my life. and at six-foot-six, i've often felt like craig was looking down on me, too, literally. but the truth is, both when we were kids and today, craig wasn't looking down on me, he was watching over me. and he has been there for me every step of the way since that clear day, february, 19 months ago, when, with little more than our faith in each other and a hunger for change, we joined my husband, barack obama, on the improbable journey that has led us to this moment. but each of us comes here also by way of our own improbab
